In our solar system, there are several thousand examples of co-orbital objects: bodies that share the same orbit around the sun or a planet. The Trojan asteroids are such an example. We have not yet observed any similar co-orbitals in extrasolar systems, despite discovering more than 5,000 exoplanets.See the Story

Scientists shine new light on role of Earth's orbit in the fate of ancient ice sheets

100% Center coverage: 1 sources
Scientists shine new light on role of Earth's orbit in the fate of ancient ice sheets. Cardiff University team reveal new evidence suggesting that precession did actually play a role during the early Pleistocene. Their results show that more intense summers, driven by precession, have always caused Northern Hemisphere ice sheets to melt, but before 1 million years ago, these events were less devastating.See the Story
